Cork-based photographer David Creedon’s stunning, large scale photographs document Cuba's small population of piano tuners and technicians at work in Havana's National Workshop of Instrument Repair. Una Corda is inspired by the Irish group of the same name, which transports Irish experts and supplies to Cuba to mentor and train this new generation of piano tuners, bringing life to music schools throughout the country.

Sculpture by Michael J. Brolly

Gallery hours by appointment
10:00 am - 6:00 pm

Artist talk and opening reception
Thursday, April 8 | 6:30 pm

Woodturning artist Michael J. Brolly’s recent sculptures combine the form of household objects with images based in personal and political history.  His painstakingly crafted bowls, teacups, and soup pots take the form of fine bone china or ancient wooden cauldrons recovered from the Irish bogs, and the images within them refer to the political and religious strife faced by many residing in Northern Ireland, Vietnam, and other sites of conflict over the last century.  Brolly’s work is simultaneously deeply personal – as in works that reflect the challenges associated with emigration faced by his parents and countless other Irish who came to the United States during the twentieth century – and universal.

Michael J. Brolly’s lathe-turned objects have been exhibited all over the United States and internationally in Australia, Canada, Germany, Ireland, and the United Kingdom.  He holds an MFA in Wood Furniture Design from the University of Massachusetts and a BFA in Fine Arts from Kutztown University in Pennsylvania.
